Pence to CBS: Dem Party And Media Are Working Together To Stop Trump; Doing Half of Clinton's Work Everyday


Face the Nation moderator John Dickerson confronts and grills Mike Pence on Donald Trump's response to women accusing him of sexual misconduct. Pence called them unconfirmed and unsubstantiated claims. Pence also said Trump is in a "2 to 1" fight against Clinton and the media, accusing the press of doing "half of Clinton's work everyday."

"I spoke out in my concern about the 11-year-old video that came forward. He went before the American people and said that he apologized to his family and he apologized to the people of this country and said he was embarrassed about what he’d said 11 years ago," he said.

"But he made it clear that it was just talk, not actions."

"And in the days that followed," he said, "I know there’s been unsubstantiated allegations that have been made, but Donald Trump’s made it clear that he categorically denies those allegations. And we're going to continue to focus this campaign where the people of the country are focused... A stronger America at home and abroad... And frankly the policies that have stifled the American economy."

"Donald Trump has made it clear that he deeply regrets those words that he used 11 years ago. They don't represent who he is. And he has categorically denied the allegations that have been made. It is remarkable that in a week where you have a series of unsubstantiated allegations, and of course competing evidence is coming out about these allegations, you have an avalanche hard evidence of Clinton's years as Secretary of State and the Clinton Foundation. We've learned this week because of another network's efforts that while she was Secretary of State, her team directed contracts for the reconstruction of Haiti to Friends of the Clintons."

"This is evidence of political favoritism that she said wasn't happening, and it has been largely ignored by this network and the mainstream media. And the American people see right through it."
